The Department was founded in 1990 and it soon became a leading centre in the higher education of business and economic sciences. The University of Padova, one of Europe’s oldest and most prestigious seats of learning, is a multi-disciplinary university that aims to provide its students with both professional training and a solid cultural background.  

The DEM is one of the leading research institutions in Italy for economics and business and nominated one of the “Departments of Excellence for research” in 2018 by the Italian Ministry of University and Research.
